SPC Aug 29, 2022 0730 UTC Day 3 Severe Thunderstorm Outlook

SPC 0730Z Day 3 Outlook Day 3 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0118 AM CDT Mon Aug 29 2022 Valid 311200Z - 011200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Severe thunderstorms are not expected on Wednesday. ...Synopsis... An upper trough will lift northeast across New England on Wednesday. Meanwhile, an upper ridge will persist across the western U.S. At the surface, a cold front will develop eastward across New England, moving offshore the Atlantic coast by late afternoon/early evening. A moist airmass will reside ahead of the front, but poor lapse rates, ongoing showers/thunderstorms and lack of heating will limit severe potential. The cold front will extend westward across the TN valley into the southern Plains, sagging southward through the period. Thunderstorms will be possible in the moist/unstable airmass ahead of the front. However, very weak vertical shear will limit organized severe potential. ..Leitman.. 08/29/2022 Read more CHECK UPDATE ZOOM GRAPHIC
